Once a year 500+ rockstar startup founders, 150+ leading investors and a bunch of media- and corporate executives gather in a scrapyard-turned-outdoor-art-gallery in one of Europe’s most underrated cities – Cologne, Germany. In it’s fifth year, Pirate Summit stays true to its core principles and values: no bullshit and startup superficiality, a hand-picked crowd (the event is invite/application only) and solely interactive formats. The mission: to foster meaningful connections across the world’s startup ecosystems and celebrate true entrepreneurship. One of the core elements of the un-conference: The infamous “Walk The Plank”-pitch competition, where 70+ early stage startup battle for Pirate glory. To seek out the EMEA region’s most exciting young startups, the Pirate Crew visited 50+ cities in 2015 with its “Pirates on Shore Tour”. From Tehran to Stockholm, from Chisinau to Baku, the most promising contestants were picked from among 250+ startups that presented to varying juries consisting of renowned investors and startup mentors.
